Salmon & Clams Soup ($16) came highly recommended by a friend, who raved that it's exceptionally good after a night of drinking. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Rare instance that I'm rendered speechless with soup. This sounds good, looks good, smells amazing.... & tastes MINDBLOWING.

That's not to say it was perfect; some of the asari clams still had grit in them - but I'm willing to look past that for how delicious & comforting this dashi sole fish broth is.

I have digestive problems with fish, but was willing to take the risk for how tasty this is. Thankfully, this didn't present any issues for me thereafter. I'd gladly have a bowl all to myself, next time!

While it kinda pains me to think of how pricey these Hokkaido Scallops ($30++) are per piece, at least they were plump & juicy. & good seafood is worth paying for. The smooth & thick spinach veloute was plentiful for all 4 pieces on this plate.

I thought the burnt leek would've been better if more charred, but overall this was not too shabby.

Taramasalata has fascinated me since the first time I tried it (Artichoke does a bomb ass one). It's a fish roe based dip made of salted & cured roe - which sounds super not aligned with my usual flavour preferences, but it works.

Lumo's Taramasalata ($18++) was lovely, topped with avruga caviar & drizzled generously with extra virgin olive oil. Unlike the bone marrow dish (which also came with 3 slices of sourdough bread), I wouldn't be able to finish this one on my own.

My only gripe is that I wish there were more sourdough that came with this - to balance out the bread-to-spread ratio. Granted, you could order extra bread (as you could with homemade sauces & condiments, & EVOO as well) for $3++, but my expectation would be for the dish itself to be in appropriate portioning to begin with.

Three Blind Pigs' Seafood Fridays bring weekly specials to the table. When I was there, the Oysters were of the French variant... They were alright (I finished them), but I've honestly had better ones for cheaper. For $3++ a pop I would've liked them to be meatier, as I've had at other bars.

Probably wouldn't opt for this again unless it's at a lower price point.

Sian. Made a trip to Tipsy Penguin specially for their oysters, only to find they didn't have the promo ones anymore.

Settled for these Japanese oysters ("premium price" they said, hence not eligible for 10% off $100 spend on OCBC cards back when I visited - not sure if this promo is still available)... Which were delicious, but damn - 6 for $24...

Ps: Naked oysters are the best. These toppings here (grapefruit & ikura in the middle; hua tiao ebi at the bottom) don't do much for how decadent & creamy these oysters are on their own.

I was on the fence re ordering the Seafood Platter ($55++), as there were some items in it that didn't tickle my greatest fancy. Eventually did the Math & convinced myself it was (mathematically & otherwise) worth ordering... & thankfully it didn't disappoint.

Good variety - grilled king prawns, barramundi fillet, short-neck clams in white wine sauce, baked scallops in half-shell, & salmon croquettes.

My favourite were the clams, quite plump & soaking in a delicious sauce that I joyfully dipped my bread in. What surprised me the most were the salmon croquettes - which I thought I wanted to pass up. The crispy edges were fried lovingly, & lent a satisfying bite into the soft, creamy insides.

Oysters at $2++ a pop during 5-8PM happy hour, which is half off the usual price of $4++ a piece, if you order a drink (max 6 oysters per drink).

These were well-shucked & delightfully creamy to my preference ๐Ÿ˜

Oyster Co. serves up Fresh Oysters at $1.99+ a piece all day, with lemon slices on top & you can also help yourself to the tabasco if you so desire.

Major oyster craving SATISFIED. Happy with these not being too briney, & they are a little bit creamy which is super shiok.

Other cheap oyster places may serve them at half the price, but at $1 a pop I've only had passable experiences with those. I'm happy paying double for the ones I had here.

You can order oysters done in other ways as well, but my preference is always the fresh ones. Your options: Mentaiko Cheese Oysters ($15+ for 3), Salted Egg Oysters ($15+ for 3), even a Vodka Cilantro Oyster Shooter ($8+)!

During Happy Shucking Hour, naked oysters go at $2++ a pop (usual price $3.90++). You can order a maximum of 6 naked oysters per drink.

They are pretty delicious, though not crazy plump. I love how they are quite creamy & with a hint of brineyness to them. Would order again!

5 for $5+ oysters on Friday, while stocks last. I was here around 6:30PM & they still had this promotion. The premises was only half-filled, with the crowd slowly trickling in to full house by the time I left at 7:45PM.

So these oysters are creamy, which I love. They are also large, which I appreciate. HOWEVER, even with a sample size of 5, I found the quality largely inconsistent. This is quite a turn-off for me, so it's unfortunately unlikely I'll be back.

To get in on the oysters promotion, you need to order a drink. Happy hour meant that I got my house pour whiskey 1-for-1. I might come back here if convenient. If not for the oysters, the happy hour.

After a not-so-filling dinner down the road, I ventured here to fulfill my 1-for-1 desires twice in the same night. I really got bang for my buck with the Lobster Roll ($29.90 nett), which happens to be the most expensive item on the menu eligible for Burpple Beyond redemption. (The actual most expensive item, F1/B3 Wagyu, is excluded.)

The way this dish was served was very odd - first came the plate of sauce, without any explanation whatsoever. Then came the bowl of curly fries. Then the salad together on a plate with the lobster roll. Very odd.

I immediately tucked in to the lobster roll & was satisfied with the toastiness of the bun, & the freshness of the lobster. The creamy flavour of the sauce could've been balanced a bit more with a squeeze of lemon, but I'm honestly not complaining. I would come back here again in a heartbeat. The curly fries were also pretty bomb especially when they are served piping hot!

One huge turnoff about this place, though, is that the volume of the music alternated between extremely loud & extremely soft. Not sure what's up with the "DJ" behind the console (jk it was just a Spotify playlist), but that made us leave immediately when we were done with our meal to sit somewhere else quiet to chat. Very much a shame because their happy hour drinks were good, playlist was awesome, but the volume control was shit.

Oh what a night! Glorious glorious seafood. I came for this buffet not knowing that aside from crabs & lobsters, there are other items laid out for a feast. Pleasant surprise! Although I will say that the star of the show really is the seafood; for that alone, this buffet is at a pretty dang good price point.

Paid $42++ per pax with the goodyfeed promotion - else it's usually $58++ per pax. I believe this promotion isn't valid anymore, but Ladyironchef is currently running an identical promotion (quote "LICX42"), valid for dinner daily & lunch on weekends.
